I am trying to clone a desktop HDD to a laptop.  I did clone the disk using DriveImage to make two identical disk but when I connect the disk to the laptop and boot, it just boots and restart or sometimes gives a blue screen.  I know the different board drivers might be the problem, is there a way I can fix it.  Thanks

A cloned drive will only function in the computer it was cloned from or another computer with identical manufacturer and hardware.
